Overview
Coaching Corps represents a network of volunteer coaches, mentors, and role models in after-school sports programs supporting underserved youth. The Corps uses sports as a means to improve educational and life outcomes by building confidence, discipline, self-control, teamwork skills, and physical fitness. Coaching Corps began its work in California, and now seeks to expand its efforts nationally. A grant from Hewlett would support the Corps’ expansion and improve its evidence base by (1) building a new assessment tool using mobile technology and (2) implementing this tool on a pilot basis using volunteers to gather the relevant assessment data.
